Aircraft Seat Actuation System Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Aircraft Seat Actuation System Market Size was valued at USD 605 million in 2022a and is expected to reach USD 1296.81 million by 2030 with a growing CAGR of 10% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

Actuators are devices that translate electronic signals into mechanical movement. The seat actuation mechanism in aircrafts allows passengers to alter their seating position to their preference. Seats are motorized and moveable between several seating positions based on the needs of the occupants. Seats, for example, can be adjusted from an upright to a reclined posture, or totally reclined to a flat position and function as a bed. Passengers can also modify environmental factors around their seat, such as lighting and temperature, using aircraft seat actuation systems. Passengers can also employ other functions linked with the aircraft seat actuation system, such as the display screen for watching movies and changing the head rest and foot rest. Commercial and private aircrafts both employ aircraft seat actuation systems.

Due to the nature of the COVID-19, the production of pneumatic seat actuation systems worldwide, has been disrupted due to announced closures and government travel restrictions. The supply of aircraft system parts for pneumatic seat seats such as electronic components, brake brakes had a negative impact due to COVID-19.

Government restrictions on travel due to COVID-19, have negatively impacted the need for new and commercially commercial airlines. As such, the market growth of the pneumatic seat actuation system has also had a negative impact. Demand for aircraft pneumatic seat actuation is expected to rise soon as travel restrictions begin to loosen in some parts of the world. The need for spare parts such as sensors, and electronic devices is also low as there is no need as many aviation businesses have been shut down due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

The market is divided into four seat classes: Premium Economy, First Class, Economy Class, and Business. Due to a rise in aircraft orders with more business class and increased desire for enhanced customer experience globally, business class has the largest section of the aircraft seat actuation system market. The electromechanical area is predicted to be the most valuable market. The deployment of electromechanical actuation systems for both linear and rotational mechanisms has contributed to the expansion of the electromechanical section of the aircraft seat actuation system market.

The OEM sector is expected to have the highest CAGR rate in the aircraft seat actuation system market throughout the forecast period. The rising need for customized aircraft that are fitted with various components, as retrofitting older aircraft is a time-consuming procedure for airlines, might be linked to the expansion of the OEM section of the aircraft seat actuation system market. The market is divided into three types: hydraulic, electro-mechanical, and others. The electro-mechanical sector has the largest market share, which is likely to grow further throughout the forecast period. Electro-mechanical is the most recent technology, and it is both cost-effective and long-lasting. The market is divided into three categories: hardware, software, and other components. During the projected period, the hardware segment is expected to lead the aeroplane seat actuation system market. The hardware component of this industry is being driven by the increase in commercial aircraft supplying a substantial share of economy class and premium economy class seats.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
